hock go home, hock go home. b.a.r.t.'s chief negotiator negotiator takes a break from contract talks to speak to negotiators. i'm heather holmes. >> and i'm ken wayne. we have developments tonight, is the bay area headed for a third back to back contract
10:01 pm
talks -- and i'm ken pritchett in for ken wayne. >> we've been told that changes have been made on some of the bigger issues. in the past few days b.a.r.t. was proposing a 5-cent raise. that's compared to the union's opening of 4% a year. it's not clear what the negotiation will be because of the gag order. we have live team coverage for you tonight on the looming b.a.r.t. strike. ktvu's jade hernandez has been talking to muters. >> but we begin with deborah villalon live outside the negotiations tonight. >> reporter: they've been talking for more than 10 hours, they are still at it and as you can see, workers are here having a very noisy rally outside. almost no information has trickled out of this building. the last time we had was about
10:02 pm
8:00 tonight when i was able to ask b.a.r.t.'s lead negotiator how it is going. >> slowly. >> reporter: is there progress? >> yes, yes. >> reporter: tom hock struggled to be heard over his hecklers. >> there's been some progress. >> reporter: can you get it done tonight? >> i hope so but we'll see. >> reporter: where are you going now. >> i'm going back to talk to more people and get more input. >> reporter: heading back to b.a.r.t. headquarters to speak about where the negotiations are. >> we want him to feel personal just like our passengers are going to feel it personal. >> we are a part of this community and we love these passengers and this man does
10:03 pm
not care, period. who would go on vacation for eight days at such a critical time. >> what do we want? >> contracts. >> reporter: with talks no doubt tense upstairs, union workers are letting off steam throughout the evening. >> it's the thought of not knowing. >> reporter: not knowing if they're going to go to work tomorrow or strike tomorrow. >> we're prepared to hit the picket lines tomorrow as well. >> reporter: the mood has seemed to darken over the last several hours. >> this is from lciu to the b.a.r.t.workers. >> reporter: a contract would be the sweetest success from b.a.r.t. and its passengers. >> i would tell them that we are just as frustrated as they are. >> we like our train, we love our passengers. it's much easier actually to run that train than it is to
10:04 pm
walk that line. >> reporter: we are talking about more than 2,000 train operators, station agents, mechanics, maintenance workers and professional staff. b.a.r.t. says to give them the raises they want fares would have to rise. the union says that b.a.r.t. has millions of the dollars in surplus in passed. b.a.r.t. says they need that money to upgrade trains. these are members of the union negotiating team. we don't know if this signals anything, if they're taking a break or if they plan to make an announcement. we know that last month when they made a truce they made a press conference. right now we do not see them in the lobby. we're going to keep a close eye on this negotiation and come back to you live if there are any developments.
10:05 pm
deborah villalon, ktvu channel 2 news. something we will obviously be keeping a very close eye on. we want to give you a live look at the bay bridge toll plaza. as you can see traffic moving quite smoothly. there's some construction taking place there. you know what things could be drastically different come tomorrow morning if b.a.r.t. workers do indeed go on strike. near the coliseum in oakland traffic hot spots like this one could be gridlocked tomorrow morning if there is a second b.a.r.t. shut down. our team coverage continues now with preparations for a commute nightmare should b.a.r.t. workers walk off the job. our jade hernandez has been talking to b.a.r.t. riders all day about our contingency plan and she's live now at the b.a.r.t. station. >> reporter: when riders say simply the public depends on public transportation. >> reporter: wheeling into the dublin b.a.r.t. station was easy today. but a b.a.r.t. closure cuts off mobility.
10:06 pm
>> it will affect so many others. >> reporter: during last month's strike, businessman azashi lost precious time on the clock. >> i came, the driver went, then i found out everything was closed. no bus, you know. so i rather go using b.a.r.t. than the car. to avoid the bridge, avoid the traffic. >> i'm on the side of the worker. the every day person. >> reporter: except that's exactly who will pay the price if b.a.r.t. strikes. this family knows personally when they had to look for a different way of transportation at the last b.a.r.t. strike. because throwing out rider schedules also means smaller paychecks. >> i can't get to work together. i would have to pay more for the bus or taxi, pay a friend
10:07 pm
to get to work. >> reporter: maganago left the b.a.r.t. station today hoping tomorrow trains will still be, running. >> it's not a win-win situation in something like this. >> reporter: we're live at the north berkeley b.a.r.t. station. if a b.a.r.t. strike does occur, b.a.r.t. is scheduled to continue its late night service but come 9:00 a.m. it would not continue its regular trains. that's when they will ask people to take the bus if they can or car pool. jade hernandez, ktvu. >> this is what the traffic looked like the last time of a b.a.r.t. strike. traffic slowed to a crawl. during the evening commute the back up spread through the streets of san francisco as drivers waited to get on the bridge. the last strike took place during a fourth of july holiday and traffic was lighter than
10:08 pm
usual. more traffic is expected this go around. and then there was the work stoppage in the heavy month of september of 1999. back then b.a.r.t. carried 40,000 less passengers than it does now. >> and b. -- and ac transit are trying to make adjustments. they will add buses. the ferry will have 13 boats in the water instead of the usual eight. and drivers beware, like last time car pool lanes will run
10:09 pm
all day. our coverage of the ongoing b.a.r.t. talks continues throughout the this newscast. we do have a live picture here and an update from looks like union members. >> my name is josie mooney, i'm one of the chief negotiators for aciu 10 to one. i also have george papiac who is the vice president of apsme. on behalf of aciu i want to announce that the governor has requested a seven day board of inquiry or board of investigation. we want to say that we have been here for the last 24 hours. and we only got a very regressive proposal from b.a.r.t. in the last 45 minutes. we're extremely disappointed at
10:10 pm
their continued pasturing, their continued negotiations which are in very bad faith. their continual failure to address a single safety proposal on behalf of the union. i want to ask my president roxanne sanchez to make a comment on behalf of aciu. >> we heard from the mayor of san francisco how it was unnecessary to keep the public on pins and needles and it's absolutely true. there's no reason why we have to continue this drama, continue this stress on the public and on the work force. it is so discouraging but we do appreciate the governor's concern and we will unfortunately it takes our attention away from the bargaining table because now we have to put together a case to present before the board of inquiry. so i don't know how much it does for the bargaining table but perhaps this will shed the light on just exactly what we've been trying to tell you
10:11 pm
the press, that this employer has worked in bad faith and created the first strike. >> on behalf of acu i'm antoinette bryant, for local 1555. we are extremely disappointed that this even has to happen. from the very onset we said we did not want to disrupt the riding public f. -- if the district would come to the table and bargain for us in good faith for a equalable contract. we're very disappointed that at this juncture we do not have a contract. our riding public deserves it. we're going to go to the inquiry to prove that from
10:12 pm
then onset we've come with reasonable proposal that is should have been agreed to june 30th. not today but june 30th. it is disappointing that our members that are here representing the rest of our workers, they are here, we're here to let the public know we're going to continue to do what we need to do to get a fair contract but it's disappointing that this even had to happen because this could have been resolved 35 days ago, thank you. >> do we have a strike? >> no we have a cooling off that the governor called today. we have mixed feelings. i share both antoinette's and josie's opinion that this should have been resolved long ago. we have the public on pins and needles for another who knows how long. we have the board of inquiry. we went through this for example in 2001 where we had the board of inquiry then we had the long cooling off period then we had the drum beat strike blooms. people don't deserve that. we're happy they won't be disrupted tomorrow. but the anxiety of what's going
10:13 pm
to happen next and it puts it back to another difficult time for people in 60 days. it's regrettable but it's also regrettable that there hasn't been a settlement. >> reporter: how long will the trains run? >> the trains will run until the cooling off period. >> it's not a cooling off period. we have to make that very clear. this is only a seven day board of inquiry. at that time there's going to be a review of all relevant facts germane to the contract situation and everything that's gone on. after that seven day board -- the five member seven day board convenes there will be a determination made that the time then we'll know what's going on. so right now we're looking at seven days once the panel is convened. >> what about the determination? >> we have no way of knowing what that determination will be. we will go there and present the facts of what we will represent as our full and fair bargaining. >> are they unfortunately not
10:14 pm
negotiating -- >> too many questions. >> can that board then determine what kind of contract there should be going forward? >> they will determine whether or not there is reason to extend the period to a 60 or a 30 or 60 day cooling off period that's its and that's all for them. >> at some point you have to come back and deal with b.a.r.t. and deal with them again. >> we have a contract that we have to bargain. >> we're going to be asking on the controllers help to come in and do an audit. anybody that can come over here and help and prevent the kind of conflict that we've seen that's so unnecessary. >> so for the next seven days there will be no negotiations between you and b.a.r.t. >> for the next seven days there can be. but unfortunately all parties must present their case. so you can see that we will always be involved in getting the case ready to present to the inquiry. >> so the trains will be running normally. >> for the next seven days, yes, sir. that's the only good thing out
10:15 pm
of this. . i imagine these are questions for the governor's office but i imagine he will move on it immediately. >> you have been listening to the latest on the ongoing b.a.r.t. talks. the important thing everybody needs to know right now is there will not be a strike tomorrow morning. >> we just heard from that representative of the union that the only good thing as she put it to come out of this is that the trains will run. b.a.r.t. trains will run over the next seven days that follows a request by governor brown to hold a board of inquiry or investigation as was originally put. but this board of inquiry will hear both sides and make a ruling on where this goes from here. so we're in a bit of limbo as to what happens next until we have some ruling. a five member panel they mentioned. >> this will take at least
10:16 pm
seven days. b.a.r.t. trains will be running for the next seven days. as you all know this was coming down to the wire. deadline tonight midnight. as you heard the unions still quite upset about the way that the negotiations have gone so far. >> that's the really interesting thing we heard almost right off the bat as soon as they walked out that we had been hearing all day long. both sides were working, they were being constructive. but then we heard from the union members that they were very disappointed. they felt that b.a.r.t. negotiators were acting in bad faith. as they put it. a reminder, we have not heard from b.a.r.t. on this yet. now the negotiations for the next seven days they may go on, sounds like both sides will be preparing for this board of inquiry. >> again, mayor brown stepping in on this board of inquiry. and we have will much more when
10:17 pm
we come back. new details emerge about yesterday's terrifying hit-and- run at the venice beach boardwalk. >> and the area is home to a new power ball millionaire where a million dollars ticket was sold.

10:30 pm
10:31 pm
breaking news right now, there will not be a b.a.r.t. strike tomorrow. however it's not because b.a.r.t. and its unions were able to reach a deal it's because of what governor jerry brown did just moments ago. >> governor jerry brown released a statement, b.a.r.t.'s request that he is calling a board of inquiry that will take place in seven days which means the strike will be diverted for seven days. governor brown said he did this
10:32 pm
because it would endanger the public's health and welfare. >> we did see the gridlock the last go round. we want to get an update from deborah villalon. deborah you've been covering the negotiations. you can hear there when the union came out. your take away from all of this. >> reporter: it's not surprising because of what we have watched in the last couple of days. glimmers of hope but over all not really a change in the willingness to compromise. if you talk to the union folks, they will tell you that the last offer they got was not less than four years ago but less than a couple of days ago. in their view this has been moving backward in the last day
10:33 pm
or two. they welcome an opportunity for an outside look at this bitter negotiation that has been so entrappable now for a couple of months. now to get some perspective we're joined by pete castelli. representing more than 1,000 b.a.r.t. workers, this board of inquiry a good thing? >> well, i think the governor intervened because he saw that the lack of leadership from b.a.r.t. through their management. the lack of the leadership and district that he had to intervene because we hat here, we want to get a contract that's our goal. not go to a panel or have a seven day period where we can't bargain or who knows what's going to happen. we think that b.a.r.t.'s failure to negotiate in good faith and actually today they were only in the room for 15 minutes. the last day of bargaining and they're in the room for 15 minutes and they bring a
10:34 pm
proposal that's worse than several days ago. maybe this was the intent by the governor to say b.a.r.t. is incapable of bargaining and we must intervene at some level. because we want a contract. we don't want to keep extending this, we don't want a cool off period. we want a contract and to go back to work. >> reporter: so the trains will run. what can we assure people on how long these will run. >> we as a union and the other unions have to look at what are the parameters of that. what does it mean in terms of bargaining will b.a.r.t. be at the table in front of us or will it all be done through -- there will be a panel. we know there will be a contract. the absolute failure. b.a.r.t. has brought in this high paid negotiator, brought him from out of town and here we are. we would like to put the blame
10:35 pm
on b.a.r.t.'s feet. i believe that's why the governor got involved. >> if the board of inquiry would not have happened do you think you would have been back on strike tomorrow. >> potentially. >> how far were you headed in that direction. >> we were headed in that direction. we feel, the workers feel helpless. we're not a huge you know -- -- we're not a huge comglomarates like b.a.r.t. we believe that hock and kernigan have a plan to break the union. not bargain in good faith and so fast that's what played out. >> we're going to try to get response and reaction tonight from b.a.r.t. representatives. and we'll come back to you with
